Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
Becca Fitzpatrick is the internationally bestselling author of the paranormal Hush, Hush series. Her new standalone novel, Black Ice, is a psychological thriller but still contains all of the key ingredients that her fans love: romance and tension.
Britt Pfeiffer has never been that adventurous, but that’s about to change. Wanting to impress her ex-boyfriend, Britt convinces best friend, Korbie, to take a trekking trip with her. But when a freak storm leaves the girls stranded they seek shelter in a cabin, where they find two knights in shining armour. Or so they think. Britt quickly realises that the girls need to get off the mountain, fast. In exchange for her life, she is forced to guide the boys down, and as they set out on a harrowing journey through the cold and snow, Britt realises the only way to escape with her life is to pretend she is on their side. But is gorgeous, sexy Mason an enemy or an ally? Tension mounts, and it’s only a matter of time before things turn deadly . . . Dark and adrenaline-filled, Black Ice will have you on the edge of your seat right until the final twist.

This is the first book i have read by Becca Fitzpatrick and i have to say i was addicted from the start.
Im one of those readers that has to read to the end of a chapter before putting it down and with this book i DIDN’T want to put it down…..at all!
What drew me to this book was the cover. It has a dark eerie look to it which is very fitting to the book, It also has action, murder, abduction with a sprinkling of passion thrown in for good measure.
We all have that one book character that we can relate to and for me it was Britt. I depend on the men in my life just like her but when faced with certain things that i have to do alone i can be as brave as the next person and for this i really admired Britt, though im not sure i could put up with her so called best friend, Korbie. I felt like she was always bringing Britt down, no matter how hard she tried it wasn’t good enough for her and that really grated on me.
The action really picked up once Sean and Mason were introduced into the book, these were the times that the book didn’t leave my side. The way Britt and Mason bounced off of each other was just right….one minute mad at each other the next practically saving each others life. And as twisted as Sean was i rather enjoyed his character, he seemed to argue with himself a lot .
The only question i was left with, where did Bear go?!
Without giving too much away this book really is a good read, Its entertaining to the very end and i look forward to my next read from Becca Fitzpatrick!
